He did it: Steven Stamkos scores No. 60
The Tampa Bay Lightning won’t look back at 2011-12 with a ton of fondness, but you can forgive Steven Stamkos for holding some nice memories. The elite sniper accomplished a rare feat on Saturday as he scored his 60th goal of the season.
As the NBC Sports Network gang points out, it only makes sense that Martin St. Louis collected a primary assist. The pint-sized winger’s precise passes have fueled many of Stamkos’ goals since he entered the league - particularly in the last three seasons.
Stamkos is just the second player (Alex Ovechkin did it in 2007-08) to score at least 60 since Jaromir Jagr reached the mark all the way back in 1995-96.
